I have a Mac Mini 2007 which has an b/g adapter built into it and would like to use it in a wireless n network. Does anyone know of a dual band usb wireless n adapter that works with OS X Lion?

See this page. Apple uses Broadcom chips, (my System profiler says Broadcom BCM43xx), so those should "just work" I presume.

If it's AirDrop you're after, you need the original Airport Extreme adapter, see this thread, or this for example.

Sounds like upgrading to an airport extreme adapter might be the best bet, thanks :) – Rwky Sep 24 '11 at 11:24
